The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is with close to half a million members in more than 160 countries the world's largest professional association dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence. IEEE Distinguished Lecturers (DLs) are science and engineering professionals who help lead their fields in new developments that shape the global community by lecturing at institutes and conferences all over the world.
Gerrit Bauer was recently selected as one of four 2012 IEEE Magnetics Society Distinguished Lecturers, who were chosen on the basis of international reputation for excellence in their respective fields, speaking acumen, and the wide-spread interest within the greater magnetics community of their proposed lecture topics. He will lecture on "spin caloritronics", the science and technology of controlling spin, charge, and heat currents in small structures and devices. The topic of the Lecture has been recently reviewed in G.E.W. Bauer, E. Saitoh & B.J. van Wees, Nature Materials 11, 391 (2012). http://www.nature.com/nmat/journal/v11/n5/full/nmat3301.html Most recent developments have been discussed at the ICC-IMR Workshop Spin Caloritronics from June 2-5, 2012, the fourth of a workshop series co-organized by the DL.
The Sendai Chapter of the IEEE Magnetics Society chaired by Prof. Hiroaki Muraoka will organize a workshop on 1 August at RIEC/Tohoku University, at which three of the four DLs, Dr. Shinji Yuasa, (AIST), Prof. Masahiro Yamaguchi (RIEC) and G.B. (IMR) will give their lectures.
